This was a summertime cinema I attended as a child with my family in the 1950’s in Newport, NH. The Latchis ran the standard bill of entertainment which meant cartoons, newsreels, and feature films. Memory tells me prints were always in good shape so properly it was first run. I can’t state much about the interior design, maybe someone from Newport can help.

Sadly, the Latchis Theater, one of several theaters in a chain owned by Peter Latchis, was burned down in a fire on December 25, 1965.

Thus theater in Newport does not appear on a list of Latchis theaters as of 1942-43. At that time Peter Latchis ran theaters in Claremont, Keene (2) and Milford NH (2); plus 6 in Vermont and 3 in Massachusetts.
